I'm interested. Can you download specific shows or does it have to be a complete year? Say a run at Red Rocks, all the shows at Autzen Stadium, or maybe 12 of your favorite shows over several years?

At the moment it only does an entire year, but I could easily add a date-specific functionality. I only started writing the code this morning, so I'll think about adding that.

Ultimately, it could allow you to download shows based on anything that's available as part of the metadata of the recording; shnid, date added, date recorded, year/month recorded, etc. Also, you'd want to be able to LIST the shows without downloading them, so that should be a capability too... hmm, sounds like fun...

Yes, but only if it provides links to DSO shows jboyguar contends are better played by them than GD (with accompanying full text of all jboygaur (sp?) reviews)

Seriously - sounds pretty cool. I'd try it out for specific runs/venues I know I attended or have "legend" status.

Keep us posted. As long as the Archive mods are ok with it, it sounds like a good tool to play around with. I'm in the software business too, but on the sales end of it. Leave it to a sales guy to ask the engineers to come up with more features that who knows if the customer even wants.

"It's not a BUG, it's a FEATURE!"
One of our industry bloggers and watchdogs has this as his tagline. I can only assume an engineer or sales guy tried to tell him that at some point.
